I am a sometime writer and English teacher as a foreign language. I have worked in many European countries and have recently returned from two years teaching in Saudi Arabia. At the moment I'm writing mainly crime novels, although I have also done quite a bit of children's stories in the past. I live in Portugal with my family.
While trying to write his memoirs, and thinking of early retirement, Inspector Braddock is persuaded by his boss into taking on another murder case. This takes him to the remote Atlantic island of St.Helena, where the victim is the French honorary consul of an island famed for being the last home of Napoleon Bonaparte.
